In this talk, Hilary Bradbury will highlight where Action Research for Transformations (ART) is directed: towards a relational response to climate change and achieving global sustainability goals together. Using examples and allowing time for reflection and dialogue, her talk will pay particular attention to how interweaving our own developmental edges regards personal maturity can help meet the demands of social justice. Hilary’s recent book (Bradbury 2022, Elgar Publication) offers further background and examples of the impact ART offers.
